to katrina, that very first night when people thought the storm had passed, what we thought the conditions were, when daylight came the next morning and we found out it was vastly different and much worse. we're hoping that we don't have that situation here in new york. we don't have levees in new york, but when daylight comes, we may be open for a rude awakening. as for thathat's dangling over the city, make no mistake about it. that is extremely serious. when you have a piece of metal like that hanging, think of a hanger and something called reverse bending fatigue. you keep bending it enough, and the wind bends it and bends it, just like with a hanger, back and forth, back and forth, it will eventually break. let's hope that is not going to happen here. that's a very dangerous situation, a very large crane. now to go to the very latest on sandy's path. meteorologist rick reichmuth in the fox extreme weather center. rick? >> i walked by that crane this morning on my way to work and i saw it. i thought how is that crane still up there when you've got winds at that height gusting to 90 to
what's happening there reminds him of katrina. gary, tell me why you believe that. >> reporter: piers, this is a city of 50,000 people right across the hudson river in new york city. yes, it does remind me of hurricane katrina because behind us, we have 50% of hoboken flooded and there are, according to the mayor, thousands of people in their apartments and homes who can't get out right now. so we actually went on a front loader with the mayor, they're using front loaders who rescue people. what's different about this than new orleans, what we saw in katrina in 2005 when we went down streets in boats, there are no casualties. that's the good news. but they're still not 100% sure. people can't leave their homes, not only because the water's deep but because there's live power lines in the water. so as we're going down the street in the front loader we see people waving from the windows, children, men, women, and most of them seem to have smiles on their faces because they have seen the water recede. in new orleans the water kept getting higher. this water is receding but people are wai

. while we are going down the streets, it reminded me of what we experienced in 2005 with katrina. fortunately in this city, no one has died. there are no confirmed injuries. that is the good news. but it certainly looked like new orleans. what also looked like new orleans, when you looked in the windows. what we saw in the windows were children, mothers and fathers, waving at us, in most cases smiling. people on balconies waving at us. why were they smiling? what they've seen is the water receding. that's the good news, it's gone down from yesterday. the reason they can't get out of their homes is because the water not only is four or five feet deep, but there are also believed to be live power lines in the water. so it could be fatal to walk outside your house. spirits seem good but it was sure strange to see people in their windows, stuck in their homes with no power whatsoever, no heat and in some cases not a lot of food or water. we also saw people who seemed a little disoriented and confused and were trying to get out of their homes. in one case i saw two people trying to dr

. conversely, if there is a problem. we think about katrina and other things, this could be bad for the president. but let's say that the federal response is appropriate. well, people just expect him to do that. the real issue here is florida, virginia, new hampshire, later this week, ohio. what happens to this much-needed push for early voting by the democrats that they have stated their victory on. what happens to that. there is torrential rain lashing of them. the president can't afford to give up any day or any minute of this voting drive that is so crucial to democratic. megyn: chris, thank you so much. also in the crosshairs of the storm, we will continue to watch it there as well is here. chris mentioned hurricane sandy causing problems and virginia. i mentioned the videotape earlier. near people already said to be without power. authorities say that up to 1 million people could be in the dark when all is said and done. power outages being reported in the new york area. the city of norfork, virginia. we will show you the tracking of the storm that could damage a chunk of
wildest imagination see the destruction. i mean, this is our katrina. you know, unfortunately, those poor people went through this x number of years ago, ten years ago. now it's our turn. and you don't know where to begin, where to start. i got good friends and family. everybody has been coming down trying to help me out, trying to do whatever we can to move ahead and it's confusing. it's mind boggling. it's uncertainty. it's my life. the restaurant was my 30 years of adult life. my home. i lost everything. >> can i ask you, you've been frustrated with what the insurance will and will not cover. you said you had hurricane coverage, but that will not take care of your damage. >> in 30 years of business here, i've never had one drop of water. and we have had many, many, manies storms. irene last year which pelted us with 13 inches of water. i never had a problem with water. okay. this wasn't a flood issue per say. this was a tsunami issue. how do you prepare for something like that? >> gregg: if you want to help the recovery efforts, it's easy to donate not red c for example. you can go on-
firm. he was a special adviser to louisiana after hurricane katrina. mark, you worked in fema also. what is the fema response in a situation like this now when there's multiple states to respond to at the same time? >> good evening, lawrence. fema's mission is to support the state and local governments when it exceeds their capacity. an event like this, it becomes that much more challenging. fema has the capacity, they have ten regions they can draw resources from around the nation and bring them to bear where they're much needed. in the case of this storm, fema has leaned forward and pre-positioned those resources in those states. they've been there for days before the storm making landfall. >> what are common mistakes made in situations like this? >> well, the common mistakes are not understanding what the needs of the state and locals are. getting out in front and not having good lines of communication. i think what you've seen in the past in some of the disasters that have been portrayed as failing is because you didn't have that good, clean, crisp lines of communication that y
thing about what you said about the national feeling here. when katrina happened, i got a call the day after from haley barbour, the republican governor from mississippi, who of course, is a friend of mine. and he said, i need guardsmen. can you send me guardsmen? pennsylvania had, you know, nickel on that dime. we're thousands, hundreds of miles away from the gulf, but we have 20,000 guardsmen and i activated 2,100 and sent them down to mississippi and louisiana. and the interesting thing is, i got tons of letters from citizens of those states thanking me, but i also got letters from my own guardsmen, who said it was the best thing they've done since they've been in the national guard, to help americans from another area of the country, who are suffering. and that's the spirit that takes over and it's, as you said, what makes us a special place. >> well, that's why people like you and they like haley barbour, thank you, governor rendell, and thank you, david corn. you don't get to be a governor, you don't know what that's like. and for the latest on the devastation on the jersey shore
play a positive role in our lives. one of the reasons katrina was such a big scandal is for years, particularly under clinton, who really did a good job of reforming fema. we said, yeah, this is one of the things the federal government does well. and when states get into trouble like this, yes, they can do things for themselves and they do a lot of stuff for themselves. but they've got to have the fed. i think right now, he has no choice but to say, well, whatever i said before, i'm going to keep fema. >> e.j. dionne, are we going to be lacking on this campaign, if romney loses, saying, it was the 47% tsunami. that it really was that that set the table for a lot of other problems that he just couldn't overcome throughout this campaign? >> well, i think that the -- whatever momentum romney had from the first debate stopped. and my reading of the polls is the last week had already been going at least slightly in obama's direction. and at least on the first couple of days, from the reaction to what the president did, from the difficulties romney has, this appears to be helping obama
hurricane katrina, and he said new york city is a much more complex problem, because these tunnels are so deep and they are so long, and the path tunnel may be even a little bit luckier if you will, than the subway tunnels, because the subway tunnels, a system that just had its 108th birthday on saturday. one day before hurricane sandy hit, and some of the electrical equipment in these tunnels are so old, they don't know what the effect of saltwater eroding the tunnels. one of the things that struck me, governor cuomo, talking quite strongly yesterday and today about climate change and how climate change has made lower manhattan much more vulnerable to storm surges and made the subway system vulnerable, which is, unfortunately, something that was predicted and predictable. >> well, it's also something -- i was talking to a climate change expert today. it is only going to get worse. we've seen the water rise a foot over the last 100 years, but in the next 100 years, it will rise another two to three feet. for an island like manhattan, that's something we have to contend with. andrea, thank
, at the height of the storm. i heard about this. we covered katrina so much, and we covered all the horror stories of the patients there. how the generators failed or why is something to look at in days ahead. but for everybody who worked there, as a resident of the city, i want to say thank you. >> you're welcome. it was the whole team. you have to remember that 19 babies that people took one at a time. >> each had that team. incredible. thank you so much. >> you're welcome. >> thank you so much. yeah. makes your heart feel good. another critical story is in its final days from now until tuesday. president obama, mitt romney plan to campaign nonstop in battleground states. today the romney campaign added a new one to the list. is that a sign of confidence or is it a bluff? we'll talk about that. if you think running a restaurant is hard, try running four. fortunately we've got ink. it gives us 5x the rewards on our internet, phone charges and cable, plus at office supply stores. rewards we put right back into our business. this is the only thing we've ever wanted to do and ink helps us do
went through katrina in mississippi says that's absolutely what governor christy ought to say, he is doing what he has to do and get off his back. and you have the underground voices of the romney campaign who were taking a different tack and kind of sniping at christie at different angles, in a fit of pique basically. >> you can't really blame them. this is game theory. you choose a, i choose b. if my guy looks like he is helping you, even if he is not truly helping you, and appearance has a tendency to be a reality, i don't blame the romney folks for being a little piqued or po'ed. >> you may not blame them, but for showing it. some of the conservatives who backed governor romney showing that they were quite irritated with this and rather take the high road, knowing that all eyes are on this storm and the response. so marc, looking at these numbers, 73% of the folks in ohio, who already approved the bailout and now approve the president's response to sandy, what do we make of that when you couple it with the chris christie hug heard around the world it seems. we can't stop talki
barbour model in mississippi after the katrina disaster. he took that disaster and used the opportunity to basically rebuild some of those communities. it takes planning. it takes courage and leadership. i, in fact i suspect you will find in both those states with the governors. bill: that is great example. thanks for bringing that to light. let's bring to what fox news was reporting late last night with regard to libya. a big turn now. now we have this letter that was september out a couple weeks before the attack in benghazi which clearly showed the presence of al qaeda training camps in the town of benghazi. there was a lot of concern about this. where are you on this story today? >> well i think there's a huge gap between what happened and what the administration's told us. only the president can fill the gap with the truth and at the end of the day i think there is it lesz son to be learned and perhaps passed onto the kids. we had seals to ran to the ambassador's aid, in running to his aid they gave their lives. we have an administration that is running from the ambassador, perhaps
